Timberland Men's White Ledge Mid Waterproof Hiking Boot review
More info about Timberland Men's White Ledge Mid Waterproof Hiking Boot
My first impression of the Timberland White Ledge Hiking Boots is that they’re too chic for treks. Still, they’re one of Timberland’s best-selling walking boots for wide feet for a reason. So, how do they cope away from the easy-going streets to the more challenging ground?
Exploring the Rubber Sole
The solid rubber sole has multi-directional lugs for enhanced traction. The boots also boast a sticky, durable Break/Support/Flex & Propel (BSFP) motion efficiency system. And the EVA midsole does a great job at absorbing shocks.
The Chic Upper
What a handsome boot this is with its subtle yet detailed stitching. The beautiful, smooth waterproof full grain leather body helps keep the feet dry and protected. And the pull-loop at the back makes it quick and easy to get the boots on and off.
Inside the Timberland White Ledge Hiking Boots
Under the hood is moisture protection from a wicking textile lining to keep humidity from feet. There’s also a removable EVA insole for additional cushioning. And the padded collar and padded tongue add further to the comfort level. However, I didn’t feel the ankle support offered enough protection for extreme hiking conditions.
The Timberland White Ledge is a versatile, stylish, multipurpose boot for streetwear and hiking. What surprised me most was how light they were for all-leather shoes. The elegant design and comfort make them suitable for casual use and treks.
However, this shoe is not up to standard for overly demanding terrain. But then, extreme hikers usually invest in boots way beyond this price point anyway.
